This study investigated the ability of industrial waste media to treat six chlorinated pesticides in water as well as the regeneration of the media by using an environmental bacterium. Results show that 2.5 g of virgin industrial waste efficiently removed (≥ 98%) 5 out of 6 pesticides in water in 10 min. The removal efficiency of bio-regenerated industrial waste is comparable to virgin media for 5 out of 6 pesticides.
